A year-round wine school opens in San Francisco on April 17th, ~THE WINE SCHOOL AT SAN FRANCISCO WINE CENTER~, with Director of Education Catherine Fallis, one of the world’s few female Master Sommeliers, who has partnered with San Francisco Wine Center owners Brian and Hillary McGonigle.
Classes begin on April 17th with the Six Week Wine Expert, a series taught exclusively by Master Sommeliers that will take students from novice to expert in six entertaining and informative sessions. The World of Wine specialty classes introduce students to the world of wine and food, with topics such as Bordeaux, Napa, Tuscany, Designing Your Dream Cellar, Wine Collecting Fundamentals, and Wine and Food Pairing. The Visiting Dignitaries series features industry icons including Kevin Zraly, Kermit Lynch, Laura Catena, Peter Mondavi, Georges DuBoeuf, and Jean-Charles Boisset. In the Professional series, an instructor team of Master Sommeliers and industry experts share their knowledge and experience in classes for sommeliers, wine directors, servers, chefs, wine retailers, and those in wine sales who work for distributors, importers, or suppliers.
The complete calendar of Spring Session classes and course descriptions are available here and on the San Francisco Wine Center website. Contact the Wine School at 415-655-7300 or email for more information, to make your reservations, or to plan your own private group class.
